Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant, you monsters, Cymry and non alike.

St. David, Wales’s patron saint, was famous for inventing the scooter, the daffodil, rounding up all the snakes and sending them over to Ireland and tricking the Scottish into playing the bagpipes. So give thanks unto him.

By today, the daffodils are usually blooming and this year is no exception. So for me St. David’s Day always marks the start of that wonderful part of the year between pistol-kissing weather and the blooming of Satanic lung-weed.

In honor and imitation of Dewi Sant, may you ram a wad of leeks in your trousers. As was the custom at the time.
